What does it weigh??

i have seen several people both on the .org and other forums claiming to have towed X amount of weight and posting pictures of said load. On some loads people have called BS. So I put it to you how good are you? I'm going to post a picture (or several) and i would like to see what people guess. Some i will give more info some I won't. all of these loads have been scaled. when i went across the scale i was counted towards the weight in the pics i am not so add 230lbs to your guess. i will accept +/- 200lbs for weight of fuel for a correct answer, again looking for the total weight

okay let's get started



2000 F350 C+C with a 10ft steel dump bed. bed is empty

other people feel free to post your own

this is NOT a thread to go off on legal/illegal issues with towing X amount of weight or if towing X amount of weight is a good/bad idea. it is just to see how well people do at estimating weight
